I think i'm missing the point...White moved the bishop to b3 (next to the king) taking the bishop seems logical to me. Instead of that black moved a pawn (e4).......I know it's almost x-mas but...I don't get this 'present
Why doesnt the black king take the white bishop on move 4?
@ wossaaat -- Ah! Thank you. Okay, now why 6 ...Kc4 instead of 6 ...c3? Wouldn’t it be better for that black pawn to get closer to a promotion?
ZZ and the eventual taking of all of blacks pawn. Either way it leads to a draw which is what white wants.
first page yeah!
excellent puzzle!!! never over til its over... MEOW, MEOW!!!
Why the black king did not take the white bishop??
An endgame puzzle of perhaps the highest order. Thanks!
not easy but nice one
I hate it when people say FIRST PAGE!!!!!!
Why would king not take bischop on move 4? I would go for the draw.
why didn't black take the bishop on 4. ..???
Why move 5 k-b4?? Why not e3? What am I missing?
More draw puzzles please - really makes you think (well, me anyway : )
I am so much happier now that I'm playing people worse than me.
